Bring on the Rain

I lived in Arizona from birth until this last September after I turned 18. Sunshine, weeds, and desert is all I know so being in Oregon where it rains so much is so exciting! I love the way the cold air and rain drops fall coolly upon my skin and tickle my nose. I love the way grass looks so much greener and the earth so much cleaner after it rains. I love cuddling into a big blanket with hot chocolate, watching the rain fall and listening to it's rhythmic patterns. In my eyes rainfall is one of the earths most beautiful gifts that most people take for granted. The mellow coolness of a cloudy sky and misty air is so relaxingly magnificent. Falling asleep while the rain dances on the window is one of my all time favorite things to experience.

Job Searching in New Territory!

Ok so I moved in to the new apartment, I'm all ready and comfortable here but the only problem is I really need a job! It seems as if no one in Oregon is even hiring! The one place that was hiring just might call me next week so I'm crossing my fingers for that one! Growing up is so difficult with todays economy and oh so very stressful. I'm also basically living off of my boyfriend which I hate, I'm usually very independent so the times I'm actually not I tend to get a big grumpy which is not good for the relationship of a couple of teens! Luckily, Kyle is amazing and understanding about the situation and doesn't really seem to mind which helps take the stress off of me. It'll also be nice to have my own money again! When I was in Arizona I knew practically everyone in town so it was easy for me to find a job so this challenge might actually be just what I need to grow as a person! Wish me luck everybody!

The first visit from my family.

I've recently moved from Arizona all the way to Oregon, away from my family. Well, my dad and brother were planning on visiting Kyle and I for spring break. I've recently received news that my mom is planning on coming up here also. In any normal family this wouldn't be a problem, but MY family is definitely not considered normal! My parents are divorced and tend to bicker a lot, on top of my mom and I bickering A LOT, on top of my mom having the most infuriating dog in the world! I usually love dogs but my moms dog isn't well-trained, bites, barks, and is just absolutely annoying! It's going to be interesting but I would never tell my mom she's not invited, we do argue quite a bit but she's still my mom and it's a bit tough being away from her! Even though it'll be an adventure having everyone in my tiny apartment I'll be very happy to see my parents and extremely happy to see my little brother!
